Stein Andreas Bethuelsen
- Master Thesis Mathematics and Physics Year 1 / Semester 2
The master thesis is an independent project in which you will apply the knowledge acquired during your studies on solving a given assignment.
The assignment will normally be carried out during the last semester of your studies, except the master's thesis of 60 ECTS that run over two semesters. At this stage you will have acquired the knowledge and know-how needed for accomplishing a relevant assignment in your studies.

Martin Gunnar Gulbrandsen
- Generalized linear models Year 1 / Semester 2
Introduction to glm, which is a generalization of (multiple) regression for normally distributed responses to responses from a larger class of distributions, especially discrete responses. Theory for glms with application to regression for normally distributed data, logistic regression for binary and multinomial data; Poisson regression and survival analysis. Applications to data, principles of statistical modeling, estimation and inference are emphasized. Likelihood theory.
